(Bloomberg) – Fidelity Investments plans to hire 9,000 new hires in the United States by the end of this year, amid record growth in the stock market.
The Boston-based company said in a statement that most of the new vessels will serve customers and be technology-based. With plans to hire nearly 4,000 workers in six months, Fidelity is making almost twice as many hiring efforts as last year.
These employees come at a time when the retail investor business is booming during the Govt-19 epidemics. Beneficiaries include Fidelity and its competitors, Charles Swap Corporation. And Robinhood Markets Inc., set new account opening records.
“Credibility continues to grow and achieve strong results,” said Abigail Johnson, the company’s CEO. “Our financial strength and stability allows us to make significant investments in our business and to create value for the people we are privileged to serve.”
Loyalty, which has about 38 million customers, added 1.7 million new personal accounts in the second quarter, an increase of 39% over the same period last year. Of these new accounts, about 697,000 accounts were opened by investors under the age of 35. The daily average of trades conducted in the first three months of June increased by 14% year-on-year.
The new hires will also help the company’s new products, including Fidelity’s Young Account. Launched in May, the new type of brokerage account offers investment, savings and debit cards to young people between the ages of 13 and 17, its parent customers. These teens can trade U-listed stocks, Fidelity Mutual Funds and most exchange-traded funds without account fees or commissions.
According to the report, Fidelity plans to offer its employees a hybrid work model. Competitors, including the Vanguard team, accepted such an arrangement.
